Spiced Tilapia with Mango Avocado Chutney

Recipes, Seafood | January 20, 2015 | By

The spices in this mouthwatering tilapia are perfectly balanced by the sweet, tangy and refreshing mango avocado chutney. The combination of sweltering yet cool will ensure that your fork is glued to your lips! As an alternative to pan-frying the tilapia fillets, you can also bake them uncovered in a greased baking dish for 15 to 20 minutes at 350 degrees but I love the golden brown crisp that the pan gives the fillets!
